Faculty of Environment student team wins NASA’s global 2018 International Space Apps Challenge for “Most Inspirational” project

Team Salinity, a group of students and recent graduates from the Faculty of Environment, developed SongSAT as a tool to express the beauty of satellite imagery through sound. Beyond the remarkable audio experience of the music that this creates, the software provides an opportunity for the beauty of satellite imagery to communicate to an audience with visual impairments, providing them with an opportunity to appreciate the wonders of the world from above.

The team produced an algorithm that converts four distinct geographical areas (grassland, forest, coastal/water, and mountainous areas) into songs with distinct musical patterns. These patterns are converted into playable sheet music, which is then brought into MuseScore notation software that can play the music back.
